Your Denver Roof and Weather Cycles
Ice, snow and the freeze/thaw weather cycle are prevalent in Denver and surrounding mountain areas.
The freeze/thaw weather cycle means that roofing materials are absorbing moisture which freezes and expands, breaking down those materials. When that moisture melts, it leaves gaps and cracks that are now bigger than before, just allowing even greater water intrusion and more damage during the next cycle.
Insulated roof systems, by holding heat in the summer, can actually cause shingles to break down faster than normal.
Steel roofing does not absorb moisture, leaving it impervious to the freeze / thaw weather cycle.
Traditional shingles and wood shakes have open horizontal gaps where the shingles are held in place by gravity or a failure-prone sealant.
The Same Solution:
Quality steel roofs feature interlocks between the panels that do not allow water intrusion.
